Human families may be bonded by blood, but stellar families are united by gravity. A family of stars, or star cluster, can contain hundreds or thousands of members. In this image, NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope spots the Serpens South star cluster, which consists of a relatively dense group of 50 young stars -- 35 of which are protostars, or stellar infants, that are just beginning to form. Stellar members of Serpens South star cluster can be seen as the green, yellow, and orange tinted specks s...

A pair of interacting galaxies might be experiencing the galactic equivalent of a mid-life crisis.

Instead, they got a second wind later in life -- about 2 billion years ago -- and started pumping out waves of new stars as if they were young again.

Newborn stars, hidden behind thick dust, are revealed in this image of a section of the Christmas Tree Cluster from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, created in joint effort between Spitzer's Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) and Multiband Imaging Photometer (MIPS) instruments. The newly revealed infant stars appear as pink and red specks toward the center of the combined IRAC-MIPS image (left panel). The stars appear to have formed in regularly spaced intervals along linear structures in a configurati...

[image]F-18 IRAC - NASA
ED10-0073-26 NASA Dryden's F-18 #853, piloted by NASA Dryden research pilot Nils Larson, flies a Research Flight Control System checkout flight recently for NASA's Integrated Resilient Aircraft Controls (IRAC) project. The flight demonstrated the functionality of the RFCS. This research will benefit aviation safety by creating technology that could help damaged aircraft to fly and land safely.

[image]Star Clusters Found in the Milky Way - NASA/JPL-Caltech/E. Mercer (Boston University)
A metropolis of stellar activity is captured in these images taken by the Galactic Legacy Infrared Mid-Plane Survey Extraordinaire (GLIMPSE) Legacy project. The panoramic image composite (top) captures 8 degrees of our Milky Way galaxy's plane (approximately the width of a fist held up to the sky at arm's length). The red dust clouds have been illuminated by nearby star formation, and indicate the presence of large organic molecules mixed in with the dust...
